please help me to clarify this function - I shoot usually in Raw however at a recent nieces wedding I was asked to shoot candids of guests .The plan was to send out via email some quicl JPG files the next day to friends and family . I also wanted Raw files for myself to edit in LR 4 In my Shooting menu on the D7K I set Role Played By Card in Slot 2 to Raw plus Jpg Raw card 1 JPG card 2 after the wedding BOTH cards had .NEF files (Raw). I proved this out by trying to open in a generic pic viewer without a raw converter which of course said file not supported. so where did my JPGs go or what is this a dual setting of some sorts ?? Ive been going thru my manual but cant seem to find anything different than what i did !!!

In addition to setting up the Role played by card in slot 2, you also need to tell the camera to shoot both RAW and JPEG in the first place. This is done with the Image Quality setting, either using the QUAL button or the Shooting Menu - it's explained on pages 85-86 of the D7000 manual. You can choose RAW plus Fine, Normal or Basic JPEG's.
